Forum: audio Subject: flac files missing tags

Hi, I am pretty new to the site and am wondering why, when I download a complete show I very often get files (regardless of format) with no metadata tags such as song titles etc. I have found associated .xml files marked metadata but I'm not sure if these can be of any help with my problem. Any insight is appreciated

files that are uploaded are not modified so if the uploder included ID3 tags then they will still be there when you download those files. some fields such as title can populate the meta.xml file during the derive task. other audio formats created in the derive task such as mp3 do not inherit ID3 tags so they won't be in those.
